1901: First photo
The Sun made history on Sept. 30, 1901, two weeks after Theodore Roosevelt became president after President William McKinley's assassination. The Sun ran a photograph. It was a profile shot (right) of Chief Judge James McSherry of the Court of Appeals of Maryland to illustrate a brief story announcing the start of the court's fall term.
